The Renaissance  The beginning of the Modern Period A period of transition
Two Major Divisions of the  Renaissance
The Italian Renaissance The Italian Renaissance (occurred first) Focused on the city-states of northern Italy and Rome The Italian Renaissance tended to be more worldly with a great emphasis on secular pursuits, the humanities, and the arts Wealth and power  Knowledge  was the key
Often called the “Father” of Renaissance humanism The Italian poet, Petrarch
The Northern Renaissance The Northern Renaissance occurred later Involved the regions of Northern Europe England Spain France Germanic regions (Holy Roman Empire) The Netherlands
Northern  Renaissance The spread of the Renaissance was delayed in Northern Europe War and political unrest Hundred Years’ War War of the Roses in Britain Plague and famine
“ renaissance” means rebirth The Renaissance began a period of renewed interest and engagement with  “classical”  (Ancient Greece and Rome) learning, culture, literature, art, style, etc.
Major Themes of the Renaissance Humanism   (both secular and religious) Human potential, human progress, expansion of human knowledge  Secularism -greater emphasis on non-religious values and concerns Individualism -focus on the unique qualities and abilities of the individual person

Background of the Renaissance-  High and Late Middle Ages Increased trade and commercial activity during the High Middle Ages Urbanization-growth of cities and towns Commercial and business developments (banking) Middle class merchant elite developed  Decline in feudalism A decline in the Church’s hold and control on society and government Growth in vernacular literature/growing literacy Rise of universities and the expansion of learning
The Birthplace of the Renaissance The city-states of Northern Italy Florence was the center of the Renaissance Italy was politically fragmented and the city-states often fought for power and control City-states came to be ruled by wealthy and powerful business people (not necessarily nobility) Signori - (despots) and  oligarchies  (group of individuals) maintained order
Florence Major center of trade, banking, cloth production, and the arts
 
 
The Medici family of Florence The most powerful family of the Italian Renaissance Came to power through business dealings and banking Bank of the Vatican and the papacy Spent tremendous amounts of money supporting the arts and cultural development (patrons) Medici power often involved corruption and intrigue

Niccolo Machiavelli (1469-1527) The Prince Machiavelli was from Florence Well educated in the classics Career was in public service and he eventually served as the ambassador to France Favored  republican  rule over despotism Machiavelli was tortured and imprisoned for a time when Medici rule was reinstated after a conflict with a Spanish mercenary army He retired to the country and wrote  The Prince
The Prince Written in Italian (not Latin) Observations and commentary on political rule and power (Medicis) Addressed the issue of  effective  rule How to gain and maintain order and control Stressed the  practical (pragmatic ) over the ethical or moral  More secular and humanistic Challenged the idea of a social order based on God’s will Political science- Politics was to be governed by its own laws “… it is safer to be feared than to be loved…”
 
The Courtier  by Castiglione  1528 Written in Italian Treatise on the training of young men in the courtly ideal of a Renaissance gentleman Stressed the value of education and manners Influenced social mores and norms during the period
 
The Renaissance spread to Northern Europe
Focus of the Northern Renaissance The focus of the Renaissance in Northern Europe was  more religious Many sought  religious reform  and a return of the Church to its true mission and spirituality Many were  highly critical of the worldliness and corruption in the Church and papacy Northern Renaissance figures believed that  education  and literacy were key to social and religious reform Advocated the  translation of the scriptures into the vernacular languages
